Hello, so I am a PPE and Philosophy & Politics applicant, and I have already received offers at a few of unis.
Recently I realised that I have much more of an interest in philosophy (especially political philosophy) than I do in political science or economics. My plan is to do my postgraduate studies in philosophy exclusively - probably in view of holding an academic post as a researcher or a junior lecturer somewhere after I have finished my studies.
Would a PPE or Philosophy & Politics degree put me at a disadvantage to do that compared to a graduate doing just Philosophy? Would I be less competitive as an academic candidate? Should I consider switching straight Philosophy?
For context, the universities that I'm interested in are York (PPE) and Durham (Philosophy & Politics). Thanks a lot.
